This can be done using Synplicity products since they are vendor independent allowing designers to quickly and automatically retarget their design from a single source to different hardware platforms such as an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) or ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit).
Synplicity is and has been the leader in FPGA synthesis for over 5 years and its products are used by thousands of top tier electronics companies worldwide.
Of course, like any software company, we would like to see IP rights respected on a worldwide basis.
AI: Do you plan to increase the share of global revenues and if so, how do you think it will happen?
We plan to continue to grow the company which we have been able to do steadily over the 12 years Synplicity has been in business.
Plus the tools help keep costs down for automotive designers since Synplicity's synthesis products deliver the performance advantage needed to meet the timing requirements and allow the design to fit into a smaller device.
Some of the companies that Synplicity has strategic relationships with include Actel Corporation, Altera Corporation, Lattice Semiconductor Corporation, QuickLogic Corporation, Xilinx Inc, Philips Semiconductor and Siemens.
Synplicity believes its products offer the automotive market reliability.
The Synplify DSP solution automatically produces a highly optimized, technology independent implementation of the design ready for RTL synthesis.
Finally the Certify ASIC prototyping product is a verification product that enables ASIC designers to implement a prototype of their chip using multiple FPGAs without the need to change any of their source RTL code.
Synplicity markets its products around the world, including in North America, Europe, Japan, and other parts of Asia.
Synplicity's products include Synplify and Synplify Pro, which are logic synthesis products that take RTL (Verilog or VHDL) as input and output a design ready for implementation into an FPGA.
